As I finally take my blog live, I wanted to address the lack of comments.  I decided to follow the John Gruber/Matt Gemmell model and forego comments.  I'm not so much worried about negative or adversarial commentators as I am with just keeping my site simple.  There's no extra widgets or social feeds, and I didn't feel like I needed to have comments either.  That doesn't mean I wouldn't love to hear from you though.  I plan on linking most of my articles from Twitter as well, and I would love to have you comment on my posts there!
